Slightly different advice... Dark

My advice is slightly different, and doesn't involve threats of suing...

Call the doctor's office, tell them you're out of Effexor, and ask if they can call in just enough Effexor to get you through until your next appointment. If they don't respond, call the pharmacy and tell the pharmacist that you have the appointment, but are experiencing withdrawal. Many times, the pharmacist will give you a few pills to get you through in that situation. Just tell him/her that you need to see the doctor for a routine med check, but ran out before it came time. Ask if they can give you just a dose or two. (Obviously, call the pharmacy that fills your prescription, not just any random pharmacy!)

Good luck, either way. And the best news is that taking Effexor again will start the withdrawal easing, and that there's no reason the Effexor won't work.
